The Lansing Economic Area Partnership, or LEAP, said it’s important for Black-owned businesses to thrive, which is why they’ve started Elevate a new program to help.
“The frames that I have right now are colorful, professional and fashionable,” said owner of Moore Vision Optical Boutique Melissa Moore, who takes pride in being a Black business owner.
“Being a Black business owner means so much to me because it’s a way that I could help out the community and be able to provide jobs, income to the community as well,” she said.
Moore has kept that at the forefront since she started the optical company a year ago. She also supports Black businesses through her business by working with Black frame designers.
